Top Drake Batherson News

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Slick OT winner on two-goal night

    Batherson scored two goals -- including the overtime winner -- in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Devils.

    Batherson's first goal gave Ottawa a 2-0 lead 11 seconds into the second period. His second was both more significant and more impressive. Batherson turned Ty Smith inside out with a beautiful toe drag and put the puck past Mackenzie Blackwood to spoil the goalie's return from a heel injury. A major ankle injury has suppressed Batherson's counting stats, but he's been excellent on a per-game basis, with 44 points in as many appearances. Remember his name when you begin preparing for fantasy drafts next year.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Registers helper in win

    Batherson registered an assist in Friday's 2-1 shootout win over the Blue Jackets.

    The Senators have been patient with Batherson, as he spent the bulk of his first two seasons as a pro with AHL Belleville. Fast forward to 2021-22 and we're witnessing a vastly improved player who has produced 15 goals and 26 assists through 42 games at hockey's highest level. Batherson signed a six-year, $29.85 million contract last September, a deal that could be a true bargain for Ottawa given the huge leap that he's taken this season alone.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Good to go Tuesday

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Game-time call against Wings

    Batherson (illness) will be a game-time call versus Detroit on Tuesday.

    Batherson was just five games back from a long-term ankle injury before being sidelined with a non-COVID illness. In those five contests, the 23-year-old winger racked up one goal and three assists, including a pair of power-play points, and should be in line for a top-six role when he's fit to play.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Remains out Sunday

    Batherson (illness) will not play Sunday against the visiting Jets, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Set to miss out Thursday

    Batherson is considered doubtful to play in Thursday's matchup with Nashville due to illness, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Batherson has stormed back with four points in five games since returning from a long-term ankle issue. Without Batherson in the lineup, the Senators will likely roll with seven defensemen against the Preds and could be forced to recall a player from the minors if Tim Stutzle (knee) is unable to give it a go, as well.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Two-point effort Tuesday

    Batherson scored the game-winning goal on the power play and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.

    Both points came in the third period, as Batherson spearheaded a rally that broke open a 3-3 tie. The 23-year-old has looked good since returning from a two-month absence due to an ankle injury, picking up a goal and four points in the last five games.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Picks up where he left off

    Batherson (ankle) picked up an assist in a 4-1 loss to Florida on Saturday.

    He also had two shots on goal and five assists over 18:42 of ice time in his return after missing 28 games. The point pushed Batherson to a new career high (35 points) in just 32 games. It's good to get this breakout star back on the ice and on fantasy rosters. Activate him now.

    Batherson was enjoying a breakout campaign before suffering an ankle injury in January, causing him to miss the last 28 games. The 23-year-old winger has 13 goals and 34 points through 31 appearances. He's expected to return to a top-six role Saturday against the Panthers.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Looking to return in late March

    Batherson (ankle) is hoping to return to the lineup against Florida or Nashville on March 26 or 29, respectively, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Batherson has already missed 23 games due to his ankle injury and is set to miss at least another five contests. With Batherson still on the shelf, Tyler Ennis is currently slotting into a second-line role, though Adam Gaudette has also featured in that role periodically.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Nearing return

    Batherson (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, but he isn't expected to play during the Senators' current five-game home stand, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Batherson was off to a fantastic start to the season before suffering a high ankle sprain in late January, racking up 13 goals and 34 points through the first 31 games of the campaign, so fantasy managers will want to keep a close eye on the 23-year-old's progress as he nears a return to action.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Officially on injured reserve

    Batherson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Batherson was given a two-month recovery timeline Thursday, so his move to injured reserve is no surprise. He'll likely be out until late March.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Out at least two months

    Batherson (ankle) is expected to be out at least two months, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports Thursday.

    Batherson suffered a high-ankle sprain in the first period of Tuesday's game against Buffalo. The 23-year-old has averaged 19:24 of ice time -- 3:06 during the power play -- and recorded 33 points, including 10 power-play points, over his first 30 appearances this season. Tyler Ennis saw expanded minutes trickle his way after Batherson departed Tuesday's game.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Long-term absence expected

    Batherson will be out long-term with an ankle injury, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Batherson was hurt in the first period of Tuesday's game versus the Sabres, and the injury will keep him out at least through the All-Star break. Given the timeline for his return, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Senators put Batherson on injured reserve. Nick Paul could see an expanded role in Batherson's absence.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Hurt in Tuesday's game

    Batherson (lower body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Sabres.

    Batherson was injured in a run-in with Sabres goalie Aaron Dell. The 23-year-old Batherson wasn't able to put much weight on his leg as he left the ice, so it's no surprise the Senators are taking a cautious approach to keep him out of action. More information should surface prior to Thursday's game versus the Hurricanes.

  • Senators' Drake Batherson: Two-point night in defeat

    Batherson had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Penguins.

    Batherson potted Ottawa's only goal over the first two periods, capitalizing on some shaky rebound control from Tristan Jarry as he got to his own rebound and snuck a backhand past Jarry to tie the score at a goal apiece halfway through the opening frame. He added a helper on the second of Josh Norris' two third-period tallies. That goal pulled the Senators within one goal with 11:58 to play, but they were unable to find the tying tally. Batherson's up to 33 points in 28 games this season.
